Ice, Ice, Baby

Winter! Here! After all!

With freezing temperatures outside for the first time this winter (spring can wait another while), it was perfect timing for an "ice cake" as a gift for Grandma's birthday.

The finished "sun catcher" has three layers of ice, with pieces of nature in between. You can see a sun catcher similar to ours here, because when ours was completely frozen, it was already too dark to take pictures in Grandma's garden. Quite a fun project, especially with children.

Clara added some crafting of hers and made Grandma "a book", with drawings, photos and good wishes (and blank pages for Grandma to fill).

I was wondering why I don't feel cold this winter despite the frost.

Natural body-to-body heating.
